According to TV Line, network president of The CW Mark Pedowitz spoke about Supergirl‘s transition from CBS to its new home on The CW. As reported last week, Supergirl will be joining The CW’s DC-filled schedule that includes Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Pedowitz has promised fans that the network’s annual superhero crossover episode will be “the biggest one ever.” Now that The CW has four DC shows, I can’t help but think that all of them may crossover in an epic four-part event! Another point of interest is that Pedowitz suggested that Supergirl “should have been” on The CW from the beginning.

Supergirl’s move from CBS to The CW will likely mean that production of the show will move to Vancouver. This has left fans wondering if Ally McBeal legend Calista Flockhart – who plays Cat Grant on the show – will make the move. Pedowitz said that there are “ongoing discussions” with Flockhart, adding,“We are thrilled she wants to continue with the show and we’re happy to have her in whatever capacity.” This doesn’t sound too promising for fans of Flockhart and her character. While it is understandable if Flockhart doesn’t want to make the move, the show relies so much on Cat Grant and her influence on Supergirl. Moreover, Grant’s humour is often the highlight of each episode. From Pedowitz’s comment, it’s likely that Flockhart may only appear in a recurring capacity this season.
